Internet is an integral part of our life, and we use it for solving many issues in day to day life. I would like to talk about a problem that I solved using the internet when my friend ______ brought Samsung wristwatch that was not working. He fell in the trap of shopkeeper that was going to close permanently, and he was selling it at a very less price without invoice and thought It would be a great deal to buy an original product at a meagre cost. After reaching home he found that the device was not working and then he again went to the shopkeeper, but he denied to return it. He told him that he must go to the service centre. Then, he visited the service centre, and when he explained the issue to the employee. After inspection, the technician told that there is some problem with the motherboard of the device and it needs to be replaced. He got frustrated after hearing this. Then he thought that he might come to my home and described the issue that he was facing. Then, I started searching online, and I found that many people were having the same problem. I applied each trick that I found on the internet. At last, I came across a post on Samsung portal and told that first device must be charged at least half an hour and then there were two buttons to be pressed, the volume up button and power button for at least 20 seconds and see the magic. I did this for 25 to 30 seconds, and then the Samsung logo appeared on the advice, and he was very happy. He thanked me, and I saw a big smile on his face. That was the problem that I fixed using the internet.
Undoubtedly, the internet has become one of the most prominent problem solvers nowadays. I have used the internet various time to solve my problems, but recently, I used it for baking a cake on the occasion of my parents anniversary. I decided to bake a cake at home to give a surprise to my parents because at that time they were not at home. But I didn’t know exactly how to bake a chocolate cake. At that time, I searched the internet for the recipe of chocolate cake. I saw many videos on YouTube about how to make a chocolate cake, and then I decided to bake a cake according to the video which was uploaded by chef Sanjeev Kapoor. I tried once how to bake a cake but didn’t succeed in it, so at this time, I want it to be perfect. Everything which I need was available at my home. Firstly I collected all the ingredients which are used for baking a chocolate cake, and then I baked it according to the guidelines which I saw in the video. In the end, the cake turned out so soft and spongy. When my parents came back home, they were surprised to see the cake and appreciated me a lot and thank me for the gift which I made for them. So that was the day when I took help from the internet to give a surprise to my parents by preparing a chocolate cake for them.
